Florence "Beverly" Kasper

Florence “Beverly” Kasper, 90 of Wausau, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her family on April 23, 2023.

Bev was born June 24, 1932 in Crandon, WI to the late Alfred and Bonnie (Faulkner) Geske. She moved to Wausau at the age of 3 and attended Grant Elementary and Wausau High graduating in 1950.

In 1947, she met Ervin Kasper through friends while he was on leave from the Navy. After five years of dating, they married on August 28, 1952 and lived the “navy life” for six years before returning to Wausau.

Bev worked a variety of part time jobs while raising her children but was actively involved with scouting, dance, theatre, stunt night and the church circle at St. Mary’s.  In the 1970’s Bev worked with Erv in their own business, Kasper’s Kurve-In and was secretary of the Marathon County Tavern League. After retirement Bev worked at the YMCA in the daycare center, as well as a bailiff in the Marathon County Courts.

In recent years Bev enjoyed time with her family, all of her friends from the VFW and the Eagle’s Club. She volunteered at Resurrection Church for the soup kitchen, at Jubilee House, and she was especially proud to work with Good News and her two trips to St. Lucia.  Bev enjoyed sewing, crafting and country music. She loved her many dogs with special note to Baxter.

Bev is survived by daughter Barbara (Horst) Kretzer, granddaughters Karen (John) Schneck and Olivia (Collin) Roeske Kretzer. Great-grandchildren Kendall (Jordan) Avery, Kelsey Bennett, Emily Schneck, Katilynn Schneck, Hans Schneck, and great-granddaughters Evalinn and Amelia. She is further survived by her sister Sue (Ronald) Schilling.

Bev was preceded in death by her parents, husband Ervin, son Scott Kasper, and her siblings Jack Geske, Bonnie (Ronald) Wenta and Barbara Geske.

Visitation for Beverly will be from 10:00 A.M. to 11:00 A.M. May 17th at the Brainard Funeral Home, Wausau with services at 11:00 A.M. with Father William Grevatch officiating. Burial will take place at Restlawn Memorial Park, Wausau.

The family would like to thank friends and family for their support during this time. The family would also like to thank Roseanne and Jenny along with Compassus Hospice for their kindness, care, and assistance.

Big hearts live big lives.
